Pinned topic Will Push be able to work through server other than Apple of C2DM

‏2011-10-04T20:17:12Z |
The application we have in mind to build requires push notifications from our server but this can not go through the cloud. We can not use ghe apple or google server to facilitate the push.

I understand that as of now, Worklight only pushes through google or apple.

Will this change? We we be allowed to push to our client apps on mobile devices directly from our server?

    If you want to get the "Push effect" on the devices, you must use the Apple and Google protocols and go through the servers. To the best of my knowledge both vendors attempt to secure their services
    Another way to do it is to send a generic message via the Google/Apple servers. When this message gets to the user, the user will open up the application and the application will retrieve the real message from the server.
    Other than that, you can use the Application to Poll the server. This serious limitation would be that it will only work as long as the application is in the foreground, which sort of defeats the purpose of push

    Hope this helps

      Thank you Mr. Widget, but I'm also interested in this argument and also my team want to know something about the next releases of Worklight: do you (or other one) know if in future releases Worklight will be able to send push notification to other servers than Google and Apple ones?

      Your workaround is usefull but how can I send a push to a blackberry device right now?
      Thanks in advance

    Support for Push Notifications in BlackBerry is currently not available.
    We cannot comment on possible future feature...

      Thank you IdanAdar, I have another question on this argument: is there a way, or a workaround for having the support of Push Notification on other services other than Android and iPhone?

      Thanks
